ATHENS, Ga. -- If there was a shortcoming in Aaron Murray’s season-opening performance, it’s that he didn’t take advantage of opportunities that could have made it spectacular.

Kevin Liles/US PresswireAaron Murray's inconsistency on the deep ball from last season carried over into Saturday's season-opening win over Buffalo.
Georgia’s junior quarterback finished the 45-23 victory against Buffalo with a solid passing line -- 15-for-26, 258 yards, three touchdowns and not even a near-interception -- but his issues connecting on deep passes carried over from last season.

He missed open receivers Tavarres King and Rantavious Wooten on the Bulldogs’ first two possessions and later overthrew Chris Conley on another long pass and led Michael Bennett too far out of bounds on a deep ball from Buffalo’s 36-yard line.
